Students in Studio 205 were asked to create an expanded identity building upon one developed earlier. The North End Soup Kitchen had acquired a church that had closed down and they were expanding their services for the local needy by utilizing the church as both storage and outreach.

Sidebars_challenge

The challenges was to keep it simple and consistent with the previous system, make use of symbols to help with less literate populations to easily understand, and make it possible to use the symbols alone or in combination with the main outreach center logo.

The students designed a series of clean simple graphics and type, and suggested some minor name changes to also reflect better what services were being offered. The results maintained a consistent style from previous work, and as a B&W graphic it is easily reproducible in all uses.
